I'm close in the lyric. Trying to come up with a good melody:

"He gave up Heaven for me

When I'm feeling weary
From trials I face each day
And I think on what I've given up
As I walk this Christian way.
I'm reminded yet again
Just what Jesus left behind
When he left that holy place
to bear the sins of all mankind

He walked away from walls of jasper
Away from streets of gold.
To be born into a fallen world
Full of dusty rocky roads
Apart from God in all his glory
The spotless lamb of Calvery.
Bore the trials and tribulations
He gave up Heaven for me.

(Chorus)
He left a throne in glory,
Placed at His father's side.
To hang upon my cross,
Where he suffered, bled, and died.
With love beyond all measure
God became humanity.
When the King came down to earth
He gave up Heaven for me.

Mocked, scorned and laughed at,
A crown of thorns upon his head
Scourged till blood was flowing
That formed a coat of crimson red.
With his stripes he has healed us
By his blood I've been set free!
Glory Glory Hallelujah!
He gave up Heaven for me.

(Chorus)
He left a throne in glory,
Placed at His father's side.
To hang upon my cross,
Where he suffered, bled, and died.
With love beyond all measure
God became humanity.
When my King came down to earth
And gave up Heaven for me"

I really like your lyrics Mr stone!

Thanks bro.
I have revised the lyric a little bit:


When I'm feeling weary
From trials I face each day
And I think of things I've sacrificed
As I walk this Christian way.
Once again I'm reminded
Just what Jesus left behind
When he left that holy place
to bear the sins of all mankind

He walked away from walls of jasper
He left the shining streets of gold.
To be born into a fallen world
Full of dusty rocky roads
Apart from God in all his glory
The spotless lamb of Calvery.
Bore trial and tribulation
And gave up Heaven for me.

(Chorus)
He left a throne in heaven,
There at His father's side.
To hang upon my cross,
Where he suffered, bled, and died.
With love beyond all measure
God became humanity.
When the King came down from glory
He gave up Heaven for me.

Mocked, scorned and laughed at,
A crown of thorns upon his head
Scourged till blood was flowing
That formed a coat of crimson red.
With his stripes he has healed us
By his blood I've been set free!
Who am I that He would
Give up Heaven for me?

(Chorus)
He left a throne in heaven,
There at His father's side.
To hang upon my cross,
Where he suffered, bled, and died.
With love beyond all measure
God became humanity.
When the King came down from glory
He gave up Heaven for me.
